Adoring Alber Elbaz

Long convinced of Alber Elbaz’s genius, we ever nevertheless stunned by the spring collection he created for Lanvin. It’s one of the season’s best, and to say he outdid himself is understatement, as nearly every look that came down the runway improved upon its predecessor. There were so many things to love: heavenly draping, gorgeously glitzy statement necklaces and belts, and saturated colors like teal and electric yellow.

Using the knockout spring show as our reference point, we sought out pieces that would convey that Lanvin feeling. We found an excellent t-strap sandal with a cone-shaped heel that reminded us of the shoes from the runway. A svelte satchel made the cut, as did a new lipstick from NARS (we found the exact color that was used in the show) and flashy fun piece of jewelry. An electric blue jersey dress with goddess-like draping completes the look.

1. Botiker Gladiator Small Shoulder Bag  ($450)

Slim and stylish, this front-flap bag has the sort of understated good looks found in Lanvin accessories.

2. Topshop Grecian Jersey Dress ($76)

The bold blue and figure-friendly cut of this bandeau dress make a great foundation for our Lanvin look. Perfect for those summer days out and about, team it with some retro Oakley sunglasses for the perfect compliment.

3. Steve Madden Evil Sandals ($109.95)

The fashion-forward and affordable footwear at Steve Madden rarely fail to please and these black patent leather platform sandals really suit our fancy.

4. NARS Lipstick in Scarlet Empress ($24)

Legendary makeup artist pat McGrath used this new semi-matte blue red lipstick to create the wine lips at Lanvin.

5. Twelve by Twelve Jeweled Choker/Headband ($8)

Feel free to indulge in a trendy bit of jewelry, like this choker/headband (we’d wear it as a headband), to bring a bit of sparkle to your look.
